ORDER

PATRICIA S. HARRIS, Magistrate Judge.

Plaintiff Terri Greenwood ("Greenwood") has filed the pending motion for an award of attorney's fees and other expenses under the provisions of the Equal Access to Justice Act. See Docket Entry 19. In the motion, she seeks attorney's fees and expenses in the total amount of $2,686.59. The Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration ("Commissioner") has no objection to Greenwood's request.

The Court has reviewed the motion for an award of attorney's fees and other expenses and finds nothing unreasonable about the hours of work performed, the hourly rate, or the expenses incurred. The motion is granted, and attorney's fees and expenses in the total amount of $2,686.59 are awarded Greenwood. Because the award belongs to Greenwood and not her attorney, see Astrue v. Ratliff, ___ U.S. ___, 130 S.Ct. 2521, 177 S.W.2d 91 (2010), the Department of Treasury shall issue payment of this award by check made payable to Greenwood, in care of her attorney, Stephanie Bartels Wallace ("Wallace"), and shall mail the check to Wallace at her Jonesboro, Arkansas, address.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
